I'm often asked to give advice to up and coming developers. If you've started a company, what is the advice you'd pass on? (Feel free to cover any and every area, including sales, initial tech infrastructure, staffing, philosophy, anything!)

Amazingly quick turnaround time. 
(Thu05) We revised APE today. Kindle took eight hours to process the revision. Amazon just kicks ass.

Remember SCSI?

This is my Adaptec AHA-2940UW controller. It was a state of the art card that allowed fast access to peripherals like hard drives, tape drives and so forth.

It cost me around £200 and can now be bought off eBay for about £15.

This one is going into the bin, because I can't tell you if it works or not. I don't even remember the bus architecture it used on a PC, except that it was 32-bit (thus the UW for 'Ultra Wide')

Sir Richard should check out touchtennis, invented by my brother in 2002 and now with global competitions and sponsorship.


New idea to stop the decline of tennis at grassroots level: a handicap system like golf. Try it out, let us know your feedback http://virg.in/rrs

A question on NSArray's indexOfObject:inSortedRange:options:usingComparator: - the comparator block has two parameters referring presumably to the element being searched for and the current element being compared against from the array. My question is, which is which? Is the first argument the array item, or the item you're looking for? I can't find anything that makes this clear.
